Bottle, courtesy of the Danes @ ZBF 2005. Gold, thin white head and gentle condition. Soft maltiness in the nose, slightly more assertive in the mouth but still mainly sweet malt, tails off again in the finish.

Disappointment, it would never be able to reach the quality of the blue version, because this tastes like a candy shop mixed up with pilsener.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2009 Bottled. Golden with a small white head. Mild aroma of malt. Some sweetness in flavor. Quite sticky on the palate. The blue one is better. Rating: 3-3-4-3-10-2.3. (051208)
Can. It pours a sparkling, crystal clear golden body with a half centimeter dense, white head. Sweetish impression on the nose, almost corn-like, with some faint notes of caramel. Some notes of fruits, alcohol and metal too. Fruity-syrup in the mouth, supported by some caramel and with a pleasant, quite effervescent, full-bodied palate. The touch of metal and alcohol found in the aroma is present in the flavor too, leading to a finish with some bitterness, but not enough to conquer the sweetness. As expected, the metal and alcohol shows up in the end too, and the metal seems stronger. Borderline annoying, actually. It’s not a very good beer, sure, it’s drinkable and all that, but it fails completely to fill me with the Christmas spirit. (090320)
